The Triathlon Season Opener


A pool-based Sprint Triathlon situated on the edge of the beautiful New Forest National Park.

A Sprint distance consists of 400m swim (16 lengths of an inside pool), 20km bike and 5km run.

The bike course heads out towards the historic village of Beaulieu through the New Forest National Park where you might encounter some of the roaming livestock including New Forest ponies, cows, donkeys and even pigs! The National Park offers beautiful and varied scenery from open heathland to magical woodlands. Finish this sprint triathlon by running towards the village of Dibden Purlieu, up the appropriately named 'Challenger Way' and finish by sprinting along Roman Road.

A great early season event for novices and experienced Triathletes alike.

If you fancy this event but can't make these dates or if you wish to try and beat your time, we also run this event on 25th September as our season closer.

HIOWAA is an independent Charity that brings an advanced Critical Care Team to the most seriously ill and injured patients in Hampshire and the Isle of Wight, giving them the best chance of survival and recovery, when the worst happens. It currently costs £15,000 a day to maintain their life saving service. You can find out more information on what they do HERE
